Candice reveals the shocking news of her egress from Generations: “The Legacy” which leaves fans in awe. “Truly one of the most bittersweet moments of my career, to actively leave a place I’ve called home. What started off as 3 months of the antagonizing rebel who eventually won over Lesedi’s friendship, became 3 years of the Lerato Matema coming of age story. Silly crushes, secrets, drug addiction, activism, kidnappings, campaigns, sisterhood, a sense of belonging, struggles with identity and young love,” she posts on Instagram.

In a bid to develop youth skills, she decides to take a break from acting to focus more on her company. “I plan on leaving no stone unturned.

In case you didn’t notice, YOUR FAVOURITE SOON-TO-BE AUNTY BOUGHT HERSELF A NEW SMILE 😁♥️ “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, learn to accept it…” For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled to fall in love with my crooked smile. Though the imperfections were seemingly minor, it affected my work, on-screen performances because of how insecure I felt and more importantly, my overall confidence. As a 25th birthday gift to myself 3 months ago and in preparation for my role on #ImpiloMzansi, I paid a maaajor bag to have my top row of teeth straightened 😭♥️. Complications and all, it’s been the most rewarding decision I’ve made in a very long time. Dr. Wynand van der Merwe made the entire process immaculate, pain-free and world-class, all in a matter of hours🙌🏽 Courtesy Of @sandton_dental_studio 🙏🏽 “Got a bag and fixed my teeth, hope you h**s know it ain't cheap. And I pay my mama bills, I ain't got no time to chill” 🗣 📸: @simzcimi_photography (Thank you so much🙏🏽) #TLNightOfStyle
As a TV personality, what better present is there to buy oneself than an enticing smile? On her 25th birthday, she posts, “For as long as I can remember,I’ve struggled to fall in love with my crooked smile. Though the imperfections were seemingly minor, it affected my work, on-screen performances because of how insecure I felt and more importantly, my overall confidence.” All this extravagance is just to boost her confidence as she prepares for her new role in “Impilo”. Whoever said money doesn’t solve problems must have not had enough to solve them.
Since Candice Modiselle bagged new teeth, who is the boyfriend she is enticing with that new smile?
Sis is going big for sure!! From making money moves to scoring one of the actors who gets most ladies drooling. Pallance Dladla, the main actor of hit Netflix series “The Shadow “is supposedly Candice’s beau. The couple however are always breaking up to make up and it has been for a little over a year now. That could be the reason they are not flaunting their love life on social media and keeping it on the low.
What is Candice Modiselle Net worth?
Although the actress’s financial statistics are still under review, she has made it clear that she has enough and to spare. She reveals this when she bags a new smile and hints that she spent a pretty buck on it. Sis has no reason to chill as she also brags about paying her momma’s bills. Get it girl!! Her acting roles, presenting gigs and her media company seem to be making big bucks for the actress.
Is the public’s perception on celebrities’ pocket depth a little far-fetched?
A lot of people expect money handouts from celebrities all the time and Candice Modiselle just had to call them out. She shares an incident she encounters of a young girl asking for a bequest of R40 000. The actress is taken aback by the huge solicit and takes to Twitter reminding fans that they should hold their horses. Most celebs do not earn nearly the sum of money the public perceives. “How much money do you guys think we make? This sweet sweet girl just asked me for a donation of R40k. I had to read the figure twice because bathong my lovie, 40 tao e tswang kae?” Was the little girl wrong though? Because the lives portrayed on social media by these celebrities convince us that they are loaded.
